Keeping your dog happy and healthy while you’re at home can be a bit challenging, but don’t worry, you don’t have to succumb to cabin fever just yet. We’ve put together a list of ways to exercise your dog while at home, making it easy to enhance their overall well-being and strengthen your bond. Let’s have some fun!
1: Play “Find It”
Who doesn’t love a treasure hunt? Teach your dog to use their nose by playing “Find It.” Start slowly and simply. Toss a treat on the floor, not too far from you, and say, “Find It.” Repeat this a few times until your dog understands the game. Once they get the hang of it, you can make it more challenging by hiding treats in different locations.
2: Play Hide and Seek
Playing hide and seek is a great way to get the whole family involved in fun physical activity. Take turns hiding throughout the house and call out to your dog. When they find you, reward them with a treat.
3: Indoor Fetch
Turn your home into the perfect place for a game of fetch if you have enough space, like a large room (but be cautious of delicate furniture and decorations). Keep the game going for a while, and your dog will tire out in no time.
4: Create an Indoor Obstacle Course
Set up an indoor obstacle course in your home to give your dog some exercise. It can be as simple as laying out pillows for them to jump over or creating a tunnel for them to run through. Having treats on hand will help motivate them to complete the course.
5: Trick Training
Take advantage of the extra time at home to work on good behavior and communication with your pet. If you need some guidance, we offer trick training courses to make the process easier.
